ESPN Encourages College Basketball Fans to Be "Amazing"
Most "Amazing" Fan Base Could Win $100,000 for Their School
The college or university generating the most participation in the "Amazing 16" contest will win a contribution of $100,000 in cash and technology products for their school. ESPN Anchor Scott Van Pelt will offer his insights throughout the contest, which launches on March 23.
Fans can participate in the contest at a custom web site hosted by ESPN.com that features an "Amazing 16" bracket based on the final 16 teams remaining. To prove what fan base is most amazing, supporters will be asked to contribute to a fan page that represents their school, and can earn points on behalf of that school by uploading fan photos, posting message, and answering poll questions.
The program is a part of HP's "Let's Do Amazing" campaign, which celebrates the amazing things people do with technology in collaboration with the world's largest technology company.
The top eight amazing fan bases will advance to a second round on March 27, regardless of the performance of their corresponding basketball team. The top four teams will be announced on March 29 and the two finalists will be named on April 4. Participants supporting those two teams will then compete to win the grand prize, a contribution valued at $100,000 to the final round school receiving the most participant points.
